Abstract

Although many conditions and medications have been associated with chemosensory disturbances, data from major chemosensory clinical research centers support three major disorders as being causative: nasal and paranasal sinus disease (21%), post-upper respiratory tract viral infection (19%), and head trauma (14%). Despite extensive evaluation, 22% of patients do not demonstrate identifiable causation.
